I can’t pick a date based on what one person wants, and a Sunday is out of the question entirely. Quite a few people would be at church, and all of the older crowd wouldn’t be able to stay up late because the next day is a work day.

If you’re reffering to Aled’s post, there’s at least 6 people who can’t do it on the 19th. I don’t think there’s been many who say the other dates won’t work.

I agree that we should have a poll, to see what the best date really would be.

I thought I would just bring something up…

A problem I had last year, was that there was about 20 films and it took a VERY long time to judge (this may be the reason for the low audiance’s choice). I think we should have the panel of judges nominate the top 8 or 10 for the rest of the Audiance and Entrant judging.

It’s probably time to take the question mark out of the title. :wink

I can assure you that something will be done to make voting easier. Besides the idea that you mentioned, I’ve considered only requiring people to nominate 5 films in each category. On one hand, I personally like letting people vote for whatever film they wish. On the other hand, a huge majority of the votes always go to a small handful of films, so by nominating the best film you probably won’t be affecting many ballots.

I can’t encode in either of those formats. Perhaps you could add 3MB per minute .mov files to the list?

I didn’t get to enter this last year, because it kind of popped up and was over before I ever even heard about it. HT and I will probably do a joint film together or something.

EDIT: One question: it’s called twenty four hour ANIMATION contest, so does that mean that you have 24 hours to animate, but you can write the script, music, and even edit the film and add effects later? Can you at least write the script before? like, could I go ahead and start writing it now? I assume you probably have to do all the editing during the 24-hour period as well as the animation, but I just thought I’d ask.

Read up on the last THAC:

Basically, the answer to all of your questions is “No”. You have to do everything within a specified 24-hour period. You can’t do anything in advance, because you won’t know what to do until the contest begins, plus there will be a way (the mod element) to prove that you didn’t cheat.

I think you should be able to export your movie in whatever format you want all you need is VLC and realplayer to watch everything that people will submit

Thats sounds reasonable, virtually everyone around here can play .movs.

I would submit that you may as well accept MPEG-4 AVC files as they use the same decoding as QuickTime 7 “.mov” files.
